Why Laura Lee Verlinde chose Puako

Waikoloa Beach Resort is a pristine 5 star resort. We have cruised all the islands as a family and returned to the Big Island to buy our home as this island seems to have it all. Hali'i Kai is a little peace of heaven on Earth and the perfect getaway for our family.

What makes this condo unique

Upgraded kitchen, high end furnishings and close proximity to the Ocean Club which houses the pool, restaurant, bar and workout facility are just a few things that make this unit the perfect location. Views of the ocean allow whale watching without leaving the comfort of your home. Tucked further in from the property entrance allows for a more peaceful and relaxing stay. Personal little touches await each guest upon arrival.

Awesome accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-long stay in this condo and can highly recommend it. The property is well appointed with high quality fixtures (SubZero fridge, Viking stove) and well maintained. We loved being so close to the pool with its own bar/cafe where you can watch a beautiful sunset. It's a wonderful way to relax after a day in the sun. Laura Lee was highly responsive to our needs and exceeded our expectations in every regard. Mahalo and enjoy your stay.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This place deserves 10 Stars. The condo had everything we needed for our long stay here. We loved being close by the pool and the outdoor BBQ. The grounds here are well maintained and the view was breathtaking , we felt very safe as well here. The condo is packed with everything, from beach stuff, games, movies and kitchen appliances. The 2 Beaches we went to ,Hapuna and Mauna were very nice and close to drive to. Also, the beds were incredibly comfortable, which was an added bonus!

We will definitely be returning here! Thank you so much VerLinde Family for sharing your lovely place.

My family of four stayed one week in July. I cannot think of a single negative thing about this condo. The place is beautiful! Loved sitting on the lanai in the mornings and evenings. While not directly Oceanside, you can see the ocean while sitting on the lanai. Can walk to the pool, exercise area and cafe. This condo is jam packed with beach stuff, games and movies; two bikes; cooler; snorkel gear; chairs; umbrellas; beach towels; more. The resort is beautifully landscaped. The pool is peaceful and quiet and extremely nice. I would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful, comfortable, relaxing condo

  • 5 of 5

My family of five just recently stayed at this condo. The accommodations were wonderful. The condo lanai opens up onto a large grassy field that over looks the ocean and is a very short walk to the pool. My kids absolutely loved it! The condo is stocked with so many beach toys, snorkeling gear, board games, and movies. There are also two bicycle cruisers! Don't bring anything! The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked with everything that you need. One of the best things about this condo is the pool. We were there everyday. The pool has a maximum depth of 4 feet, which was perfect for my youngest child, who is not quite an avid swimmer. The pool area is pristine and the staff at the bar are welcoming and friendly. The views from the pool are extraordinary. The condo is centrally located to shopping, restaurants, and a short drive from the airport (27 miles). There are plenty of walking and jogging trails. We took a short walk from the pool, over to the Hilton resort for dinner and to watch the dolphins. We really enjoyed how quiet and peaceful this complex is and would highly recommend staying here. We will be returning! Thank you for a wonderful family vacation!
